One Response to “How to Cite in a Philosophy Paper (MLA)”

    I didn’t catch your name? MLA and APA always scare the crap out of me ( mostly because it gets so confusing and I feel like I was never really properly taught how to use them) but you did a great job breaking this down. Your speaking voice is confident and clear, the arrows throughout the presentation are very helpful and I never felt lost while watching the video. You should teach a class on this. Thanks so much!
